A Rosé to confirm the magic of wine colors!

(By Marina La Forgia) While discovering and tasting this wine, it's possible also to feel and enjoy the magic of colors! Why? Because this fresh and French "Rosé" by Francois Lurton is made indeed from Sauvignon "Blanc" and Sauvignon "Gris". Voilà, this original blend is been made to captivate! 
If you, like me, love sunny apero evenings in the terrace, it's almost irresistible not to be charmed by its perfumed bouquet of roses, pamplemousse, pear and a hint of jasmine and lemon. In the mouth, its gently, rounded and elegantly fruity and dry. 
This rosé Les Fumées Blanches is a great addition to the same name label that already offers a very good white in the Quebec market. And that’s not all! Another special white brand from this producer is getting into the SAQ shelves as well, so I’ll be absolutely tasting and reviewing it very soon! 
Since I started tasting wines professionally, I always liked and well appreciated the ones of Lurton because of their constant quality, elegance and authenticity, independently the terroir where they come from. This winemaker is in my humble opinion, one of the best in getting the real essence and unicity from the different wine regions and its local varieties, offering to consumers all over wines that are affordable, simply enjoyable and expressive. No matter whether the wines are from Argentina, Chili, France or Spain, his "savoir faire" signature is always the same! And with this new Rosé, I cannot do other than confirm my premise. Enjoy it while it rests… both wine and warm days!

Vetiver Viura, a delight from Rioja

(By Marina La Forgia) Let me introduce you to this very pleasant white wine from Bodegas Ontañon made with Viura, indigenous grape from Rioja. Vetiver is a good mix of terroir expression and winemaking. It combines intense tropical fruits aromas with some buttery and smoky notes that make it very original, onctuous and rich without losing any elegance and delicacy in the palate. Yes, it's a 2014 vintage which means "an aged white", and it really resumes the authentic Rioja style. However, at the same time this Vetiver is an innovative and audacious type of wine that I really loved to discover. It's good to get out of the comfort zone sometimes, wine tasting speaking...right?

Viña Real Crianza, an authentic Rioja blend

(Marina La Forgia) I like red wines when they are fruity, fresh and elegant, but I like them most when they also have a good structure and are a genuine expression of their unique Rioja ones! The Viña Real Crianza from CVNE Bodegas is without any doubts one of these spanish reds that never disappoint. If you look for a medium bodied and delicate red wine for your tasty meals, then try this delicious blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Mazuelo, aged for a minimum of 1 year in both French and American oak barrels. Intense but round, fruity but also a bit herbaceous, this Crianza is an authentic and traditional Rioja. A unique style and a sure value. 

Apothic Red: Un blend de California intenso y misterioso

No soy una consumidora frecuente de vinos californianos, pero debo reconocer que en general me gustan mucho. Forman parte del ya conocido estilo nuevo mundo donde la fruta, el color y la intensidad de cuerpo, sabores y aromas son característicos. He descubierto recientemente un vino tinto sublime. La etiqueta se llama Apothic y es el único exponente de la bodega que lleva su nombre, Apothic Wines. Por lo visto han puesto su energía a vinificar un solo vino, pero con gran dedicación. Me he dejado gratamente cautivar por este vino desde lo visual. Ya su nombre es atractivo, proviene del latín “Apotheca” y nos remite al misterioso lugar donde en el medioevo los europeos elaboraban y almacenaban sus vinos. Y en su nombre está su esencia, ya que es un secreto “blend” del enólogo que incluye cuatro variedades intensas: Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon y Merlot. El resultado no es más que una explosión de fruta, ya sea en sus aromas como en el gusto. Una verdadera delicia para los se
